  • This study was implemented to verify the feasibility of motor function recovery and the appropriate period for therapy. The research began with spinal laminectomy of 40 white rats of Sprague-Dawley breed and induced them spinal crush injury. Following results were obtained by using the modified Tarlov test (MTT), Basso, Beattle, Bresnahan locomotor rating scale (EBB scale) and modified inclined plate test (MIPT). First, the measurement using the MTT confirm that the most severe aggravation and degeneration of functions are observed two days after induced injury, and no sign of neuromotor function recovery. Second, better scores were achieved by open-ground movement group on BBB locomotor rating scale test, and weight-bearing on inclined plate group show better performance on MIPT. Third, both BBB and MIPT scale manifested the peak of motor function recovery during 16th day after the injury and turn into gradual recovery gradient during 16th to 24th. Fourth, the control group showed functional recovery, however, the level of recovery was less significant when compared with group open-ground movement group and weight-bearing on inclined plate group. Hence, it was clearly manifested that the lumbar region of the spinal cord had shown the best performance when its functions were measured after the execution of specific physical training; therefore it indicated the possibility of learning specific task even in damaged lumbar regions. Thus it is expected to come out with better and more effective functional recovery if concentrated physical therapy was applied starting 4 days after the injury till 16 days, which is the period of the most active recovery.

  • This research is conducted to develop predictable method of real scale nanofiltration treatability with small scale nanofiltration experiments. As a result of comparing calculated values with measured values, they are in a good agreement for the concentrations in filtered water and concentrated water. The results of that are not affected by change of system recovery from 20% to 95%. The proposed method is produced using constant recovery of elements, that is, no considering the pressure change. we can predict filtrated flux and contaminant concentrations with the method. The method has the following steps. (1) Calculate recovery of each element with water quality level after fixing recovery elements, (2) Predict system recovery with recovery of elements in 1, 2, 3, and 4 banks, (3) Run small scale nanofiltration experiments in predicted water quality and (4) Simulate large scale nanofiltration system for forecasting actual water quality. As the cost for nanofiltration pretest will reduced if we use the proposed method, it will be a promising method for introducing nanofiltration to supply safe drinking water.

  • This study examined two differences in physical and psychological recovery patterns after surgery in the elderly. The sample consisted of 40 patients with abdominal surgery In five large hospitals in Seoul. The data for this study were collected from Apr. 20 to Nov. 26 by structured questionnaire, chart review and call. Physical recovery was assessed by ADL, a Cantril Ladder Scale and a Visual Analogue Scale. Psychological recovery was measured by the Geriatric depression Scale and a Cantril Ladder Scale. The data were analyzed using frequency, percentage, Pearson Correlation Coefficient, and MANOVA by SPSS/WIN. The result are as follows : 1. Physical recovery indicated significant improvement over time with the exception of ADL(F=.812 p=.449). Perceived physical health were significantly improved(F=6.189 p=.004). Pain & discomfort was significantly decreased(F=3.927 p=.025). 2. Perceived psychological health was significantly improved over time(F=20.648 p=.000), but depression showed no statistical significance improvement over time(F=1.393 p=.256). 3. There were no significant effects of sex, age, complication and combined chronic diseases on physical and psychological recovery patterns. 4. There were significant correlations between operation time and pain(r=-.331 p=.020), recovery time and perceived psychological health(r=-.320 p=.024), recovery time and pain(r=.404 p=.005). There were significant correlations between admision period and ADL(r=-.418 p=.004), perceived physical health(r=-.354 p=.014), depression(r=.280 p=.042), and perceived psychological health(r=-.447 p=.002). BRAS showed significant correlation with ADL(r=-.458 p=.002). 5. With an increase in the degree of perceived health(physical and psychological), ADL was significantly increased. With an increased in the degree of depression and pain, ADL and perceived health(physical and psychological) were significantly decreased. In conclusion, the elderly patient recovered significantly over time with the exception of ADL and depression. It these we suggested to considered when planning care for elderly patients.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of interference current therapy and laser therapy on functional recovery after total knee arthroplasty by measuring the Berg balance scale and range of motion. Methods: Subjects were 30 patients who were admitted to G Hospital after total knee arthroplasty. They were randomly assigned to experimental group I in which interference current therapy was applied (n=10), experimental group II in which laser therapy was applied (n=10), or the control group (n=10). The Berg balance scale and range of motion of the subjects were measured before, after 2 weeks, and after 4 weeks of therapy. Results: There was a statistically significant change (p<0.05) in the Berg balance scale and range of motion before and after therapy intervention among the laser therapy group and the interference current therapy group. There was also a significant change between the groups in the Berg balance scale and range of motion. Tukey's post hoc comparison showed a statistically significant difference between the control group and experimental group I and between the control group and experimental group II (p<0.05). Conclusion: The application of interference current therapy and laser therapy resulted in a significant change in both the Berg balance scale and range of motion among patients with total knee arthroplasty. The findings of this study can be used as preliminary clinical data in evaluating functional recovery in patients with total knee arthroplasty in a post-clinic setting.

  • This paper is a methodological research aimed at developing a mental disorder recovery scale (MDRS) and testing its validity and reliability. After three sessions of factor analysis, a total of three factors using an Eigen value of 1.0 or more were drawn. The explanatory power was found to be 58.1%. All the items met the criteria for communality and factor loading with no item removed, and, ultimately, 25 items were selected. Criterion-related validity test showed that Pearson's correlation coefficient was significant at .71 (p<.01) with significant correlation with each factor (p<.01). The reliability test showed that Cronbach's ${\alpha}$ coefficient was .95 and that Cronbach's ${\alpha}$ coefficient for each factor ranged from .87 to .93. MDRS, which was developed in this study and possessing 3 factors and 25 items, had both its validity and reliability confirmed; therefore, the developed scale would be useful to evaluate the recovery of individuals with mental disorder.

  • The objective of this study was to find process simulations of the plant-wide scale lactic acid recovery process using thermally coupled distillation columns to mitigate the remixing effect. The remixing effect has been widely discussed because in a conventional column arrangement it induces a need for a significant amount of energy for repurification in lactic acid recovery processes. One way to overcome high energy consumption is by using thermally coupled distillation columns. This paper suggests and compares two types of thermally coupled distillation columns applied to the plant-wide scale lactic acid recovery process for removing the remixing effect considering a heavy organic impurity and lactic acid oligomerization in the process. The equilibrium stage model based on the RADFRAC module of Aspen Plus was employed for simulating the thermally coupled distillation columns. Simulation results showed that thermally coupled distillation columns can eliminate the remixing effect and reduce energy consumption compared to conventional lactic acid recovery processes.
